This is my first post but I have been reading the site heavily. Here are my problems: Like many others I am new to owning a pool. Purchased my home at the end of May and it came with a swamp that I eventually got cleared up (except for vacuuming). I had to leave town and left the filter off for two weeks because it was vibrating like crazy and super noisy. Of course when I returned I had a swamp again. I have cleared it up again but it is still cloudy. I got rid of the vibration by using the sock method I read about on your forum. I cut it in half and put the open part at the top of the filter and the toe part on the bottom of the filter which totally silenced the noise from the vibration. I seem to have a water flow problem now. I'm not sure if it's because of the sock or if there is a problem with the pump. I tried priming the pump and pretty much got all of the air out but it doesn't seem to be pulling in as much water in the suction. Any thoughts? I have not been able to use my pool yet! So sad......
PH 8.0 (I put in some ph lower to see if it helps to clear it up)
FC and CC not tested. Pool still at shock level
